    A few days after my very wet first visit, we returned in blazing sunshine for a second potter about - even took a packed lunch this time :)

    My gf is a big fan of Downfallen's pictures, so she wanted me to take this:

    The very dry atmosphere and no scavengers means dead pigeons just fossilise:

    A pair of giant flues:

    A plumbing diagram of this place must be incredible:

    Looking down one of the open spaces:

    [​IMG]

    And looking even further down - we were standing on the 56.5m level, and that red floor is on the 4m level.

    The roof is much more pleasant in the sunshine (and without a police boat buzzing about):

    [​IMG]

    And all the way down to the ground floor:

    [​IMG]

    The controls for an overhead hoist:

    In the laboratory area, there are lots of taps for sampling water from different parts of the plant:

    The only plants we found inside the building seem to like sulphuric acid:

    Up onto the gantry, we felt very exposed - especially as those radiators on the turbine floor had an inspection note less than a month old on them:

    [​IMG]

    I climbed up into one of the crane cabs:

    [​IMG]

    And walked along the crane to a view down into the turbine hall:

    [​IMG]

    Searching for the control room, we found the battery backup rooms:

    [​IMG]

    Unfortunately the control room itself was securely locked up:

    [​IMG]

    I tried stitching a panorama on the roof - a strange result, but quite cool :)

    [​IMG]

    And from the gantry, two of the turbines:

    As usual, lots more pictures are in my Flickr set...
